Dear member of the Class of 2020,

My warmest congratulations as you complete your senior year in the College of Arts and Sciences and become alumni/ae of Loyola University Chicago. The lives of our faculty and staff have been truly enriched by walking with you on this important stage of your journey. Hopefully, you will take away from your undergraduate experience not only the understanding that we must be life-long learners, but also a genuine and sincere desire to become Women and Men for others, in the highest sense of the Jesuit ideal.
